Chamois Coloured Goat
The Chamois Coloured goat is native to the Swiss Alps, but has spread to many countries of the European Union. This breed of goat does very well both in the mountains and on the plains, due to a good tolerance of both heat and cold; it is bred both in semi-breeding set-ups and on medium and large breeding farms. Like many species adapted to mountain life, it also has a frugal diet, very adaptable to the most diverse climatic conditions.
It is an excellent milk producer, with an average production per lactation of about 400 litres, which is mainly destined for processing in order to obtain typical raw milk products, such as fresh and aged cheeses as well as yoghurt and ricotta.
